SpringOne 2GX 2012 Replays: Getting started with Spring Data and Distributed Database Grids + Whoops, where did my architecture go

Getting started with Spring Data and Distributed Database Grids

Alternative data persistence approaches are all the rage these days. Transitioning our skill sets and legacy applications to these new and promising technologies though can be problematic. Spring Data is an exciting solution to persistence proliferation. It brings the flexibility and familiarity of the Spring Framework and adds the concepts of Repositories which allow developers to write their programs to using familiar methods such as save, update, delete, and dynamic finders.

In this presentation we will introduce Spring Data for GemFire and how it leverages your existing Spring Framework skills to create generic Spring style interfaces which will make it more efficient to transition to distributed data grids such as GemFire.

SpringOne 2GX 2012 Replays: Monitoring and Managing Spring Integration, Building Big Data Pipelines with Spring Hadoop

In this presentation we will discuss the options for managing and monitoring applications that use Spring Integration. It will provide a comprehensive overview of the extensive support for JMX provided by Spring Integration, both in terms of providing access to Spring Integration internals, as well as creating a JMX client to interact with local and remote MBeanServers.

In addition, we will show how to use the Spring Integration plugin for Spring Insight to drill down into Spring Integration flow processing to examine application performance.

Topics include:

  • Using the Integration MBean Exporter, and the MBeans it registers, for analyzing Messaging Endpoints and Channels.

  • Exporting the Integration MBean Exporter itself as an MBean, to gain access to it’s attributes and operations.

  • Using the Control Bus to start and stop endpoints.

  • Using the Spring Integration plugin for Spring Insight to get a real-time view of your application and its performance.

  • Enabling and using Message History

  • Using the orderly shutdown mechanism available in Spring Integration 2.2.

  • Using JMX endpoints (with local and remote MBeanServers) to monitor attributes. invoke operations, publish notifications, and receive notifications.

When.js 1.8.0 Released

Dear Spring Community,

We are pleased to announce the release of when.js 1.8.0.

When.js is cujojs’s lightweight Promises/A and when() implementation, derived from the async core of wire.js, cujojs’s IOC Container. It also provides several other useful Promise-related concepts, such as joining multiple promises, mapping and reducing collections of promises, and timed promises.

Among other things, this release includes an extensive set of adapters for working with existing callback-based APIs, including node-style async APIs, allowing you to effectively convert them into promise-aware functions. In addition, most of the new features in this release are community contributions, which is awesome. Keep it coming!
